Re: Will SoldydK 9 use KDE LTS and will Debian update LTS updates

The KDE announcement " KDE at 20: Plasma 5.8 LTS.

Re: Sources/packages for Debian Testing/Enthusiast's Editions

palimmo: I agree with grizzler that now is not a good time to switch from the SolydK main edition (jessie stable base) to SolydK-EE (stretch testing base). However, if you do really wish to do this then it is essential that you use the "apt dist-upgrade" command, rather than the straight "apt upgrad...

@zill If you're running the regular version (not EE) the adjustments-9 packages are not even available. I've tested this many times on the 201701 ISOs and that seemed to work. I don't know what's happening on your system. You can also update the solydx-system-adjustments package first and then inst...

Re: LibreOffice updates not really updating ?

The SolydXK main editions are based on Debian stable (currently jessie) and this means that most packages remain functionally unchanged for the life of the Debian stable release. The only updates provided are therefore security patches and critical bug-fixes. The current jessie version of LibreOffic...
